When Katy Perry debuted her slime green hair earlier this week, she was doing more than sporting a new look – she was displaying a new attitude.

She's topped the charts with songs about fireworks and California girls so hot, they'll melt your popsicles. And, no, we haven't forgotten about her feather-ruffling ode to peacocks, either.
But it's Katy Perry's single "Roar" that's truly had us (plus, you know, the entire Internet) singing along. Since its August release, the pop star has inspired many a fan to put their own spin on the instant anthem via video tributes.
As Perry's song continues earning plenty of applause (Ha. Ha. Get it?), here are five must-watch homages – hear them roar (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!).

"Do you wanna see me naked, lover? / Do you wanna peek underneath the cover? / Do you wanna see the girl who lives behind the aura?" teases Lady Gaga in the beginning moments of Artpop, as if she might strip it all the way down to the real Stefani Germanotta.
But "Aura," the zigzagging opener, is as larger-than-life as the singer's persona, and the rest of her third proper studio album only goes further to show that she has crafted a pop image – as a walking, breathing piece of art – that goes far beyond the music.

Katy Perry's boyfriend might be famous, but she's not trying to make her relationship with John Mayer into the music industry equivalent of Brangelina.
"I want to have a normal life with a normal relationship and I don't want to be forced to just hang out in a hotel room all the time," she tells Entertainment Weekly. The singer-songwriter, 29, says that while she shares "bits and pieces," she doesn't want to reveal everything about their life together.
"I keep enough to myself," she says. "I'm going to go on dates and movies and dinners and when I do it's not because I'm trying to garner any kind of publicity, it's because it's something that is just an inevitable byproduct of this life. It's never my main focus, it's never intentional. [My] ideal date is just dinner and a movie. It's so normal. And a hike, we love to hike."

It wasn't a good sign for me when "Roar," the No. 1 single that heralded Katy Perry's third studio album, felt kind of tame compared to Sara Bareilles's "Brave," a similar self-empowerment anthem that came out a few months before.
But the good news is that "Roar" (which, admittedly, has since grown on me) isn't even one of the best songs on the vibrant, multicolored Prism – and there are certainly plenty more hits where that came from.
This is a pop blockbuster that easily beats 2010's hit-laden behemoth Teenage Dream. It finds Perry once again working with A-list producers like Dr. Luke, Max Martin, Stargate and Benny Blanco, and they deliver the hooks and beats for the diva, whether it's blissful dance tracks ("Birthday") or forceful power ballads ("Unconditionally").
